Biography

After leading a succesful fusion-style ensemble for a couple of years, Jukkis Uotila was ready to record new material written with a more contemporary sound in mind. With bold use of electronic instruments, Jukkis produced an album of what he feels are some of his stronger compositions.

Using the help of seasoned engineer Tom Swift and keyboard programmer Robby Kilgore, he worked with sequenced drum and keyboard tracks while solo room was saved for the star studded cast of players. Highlights include John Scofield's work on "Out in left Field", Mike Stern on "Avenida" and the strong writing throughout the CD. Jukkis saved a solospot also for himself on the energetic"live in studio-track", "Dedications".
